    Is there a sect which calls itself Christian (follow Christian bible) without making Jesus into god?

    Probably most of today's Unitarian Universalists. Many Anglicans/Episcopalians, Methodists, ELCA Lutherans etc.

    There's a big group of theologically "liberal" Protestants in both the United States and Europe who seem to treat Jesus as some kind of uniquely authoritative sage or philosopher. He might have been uniquely attuned to God, served as God's instrument by channeling God and by doing nothing but God's will, or something like that. But they don't believe that he was literally God.

    I expect that many Roman and Orthodox Catholics think of Jesus the same way.

    I agree with your point, but what I was trying to find out is there a sect, rather than individuals, which calls itself Christian without the divinity of Jesus.

    You mean Jesus as a secular moral figure, a philosopher?
    What would be Jesus' claim to fame, if it wasn't for "divine intervention"?
